Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache Reverse Proxy Configuration
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 18:04:22 GMT
On the front end we have Apache 2.2.21 running on Windows 2003
We configured Apache as a Reverse Proxy using mod_proxy

On the back end we have a COTS application by IBM called Maximo
This application is deployed on WebLogic and running on Windows 2008


When a user requests access through the Apache RP on the front end. 
Apache forwards the request to the back end IBM Maximo application.
User is prompted with a Basic Prompt from Weblogic security.
User logs in and is presented with the application home page. 
All fonts and links are greyed out. The page displays correctly images/css/ etc. But all of
the links that are javascript DO NOT work.
It's like the home page is in "read only mode". Can't click anything. Right clicking on the
page does not work.

Below is the httpd.conf we are using. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/

LoadModule headers_module    modules/

that we are facing with the Apache Reverse Proxy is that any type of JavaScript or servlets
that use JAVA are not being proxied correctly. The version of Apache that we are using is
2.2.21.  Also, we're currently running Windows Server 2003.

Can you clarify what you mean by "not being proxied correctly?"  We
have a very similar environment (even some customers on 2003) and
everything has been perfect for us.
